Has your child swallowed a small battery? In the future Kirk Gibson Authentic Jersey , a tiny robot made from pig gut could capture it and expel it.

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are designing an ingestible robot that could be used to patch wounds, deliver medicine or dislodge a foreign object. They call their experiment an "origami robot" because the accordion-shaped gadget gets folded up and frozen into an ice capsule.

"You swallow the robot, and when it gets to your stomach the ice melts and the robot unfolds," said Daniela Rus, a professor who directs MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. "Then, we can direct it to a very precise location."

It's still a long way before the device can be deployed in a human or animal. In the meantime Babe Herman Authentic Jersey , the researchers have created an artificial stomach made of silicone to test it.

Rus said one of the robot's most important missions could be to save the lives of children who swallow the disc-shaped button batteries that increasingly power electronic devices. If swallowed, the battery can quickly burn through the stomach lining and be fatal.

The robots could seek out and capture the battery before it causes too much damage, pushing it down through the gastrointestinal tract and out of the body.

The robot's flexible frame is biodegradable, made of the same dried pig intestine used for sausage casing. The researchers scoured markets in Boston's Chinatown before finding the right material to build an agile robot body that could dissolve once its mission was accomplished.

"They tried rice paper and sugar paper and hydrogel paper, all sorts of different materials," Rus said. "We found that sausage casing has the best properties when it comes to folding and unfolding and controllability."

Embedded in its meaty body — it wouldn't be hard to make a kosher version Yasiel Puig Authentic Jersey , Rus said — is a neodymium magnet that looks like a tiny metal cube.

Magnetic forces control its movement. Researchers use remote-control joysticks to change the magnetic field, allowing the robot to slip and crawl through the stomach on the way to the object it is trying to retrieve or the wound where it must deliver drugs.

Would it hurt to ingest a robot? Probably not, said research team member Steven Guitron, an MIT graduate student in mechanical engineering.

"I'm sure if you swallowed an ice cube accidently, it's very similar," he said.

MIT's team has a patent pending and presented its research at a robotics conference in Sweden this spring. Rus said medical companies have expressed interest in clinical applications Cody Bellinger Authentic Jersey , which require going through the regulatory process of conducting animal and human studies.

"It's a nifty idea," but it could be a decade or so before hospitals could use such a device, said William Messner, a professor of mechanical engineering at Tufts University in Massachusetts who is not involved with the project. He said it could also have promise in performing biopsies.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration "has to get involved with anything like this and they're rightfully very careful about any kind of medical instrument," Messner said. "The big problem is: What if it gets stuck? Now you've really got a problem."

The multidisciplinary project fits into the growing field of soft robotics that coalesced with the 2013 founding of the peer-reviewed Soft Robotics Journal, based at Tufts. The Boston region is a hub for research into the moving machines made of flexible materials that can change shape and size, making them useful for surgery and other complex environments.

Asbestos is really a natural mineral with unusual qualities, it may withstand high temperatures and chemicals, and they’re very versatile and versatile that they can be converted into a broad array of forms. They may be added to various materials such as cotton and cement. These unique and diverse capabilities of asbestos managed to get a popular material for countless applications from lamp wicks to tablecloths to insulating boilers and pipings. In the 19th century asbestos mineral was a popular material for builders and manufacturers due to its resistance to heat and chemical damage Jackie Robinson Authentic Jersey , sound absorption amongst others. Due to increasing popularity, commercial mining of asbestos were only available in Canada. Because it has been used by builders, asbestos can be found in and around your house or buildings such as exterior siding, textured and latex paints vinyl flooring, caulk, hair dyers Mike Piazza Authentic Jersey , flames resistant aprons, electric blankets and much more.

As unique and useful it is, unfortunately, prolonged contact with asbestos can be to be fatal. Asbestos are made up of fibers so small it is invisible to the human eye. When these fibers are freed into the air, it can get into your lungs when inhaled, and may remain there for life. This could damage the lungs Clayton Kershaw Authentic Jersey , resulting in illness as well as death. The most common illnesses associated with asbestos are Cancer of the lung, Mesothelioma (cancer of the lining from the chest or abdomen) and Asbestosis (progressive scarring from the lung). The first case of asbestosis was diagnosed in UK in 1924, as well as in 1906 the fi.
